    Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow is pleased to announce the renovation of all guestrooms and its lobby area. The dramatic transformation to new standards of luxury will be divided into several phases, with the lobby scheduled to be the last area to close for renovation in late summer 2012. With the phased renovation, minimum disruption to guests is anticipated and the hotel will remain fully operational throughout.The scope of the multimillion dollar project will feature a complete redesign of the hotel’s 204 guest rooms and its lobby. Tony Chi, a renowned architect known for creating hospitality masterpieces such as Park Hyatt Shanghai and Park Hyatt Washington, has been engaged to oversee the transformation of Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow. The new design will be sleek yet welcoming, understated and intimate, reflecting the vast experience and creativity of Mr. Chi and his associates. New architectural fixtures and finishes, custom designed contemporary lighting and new furniture will be amongst the highlights of the new look.

    Of the hotel’s 204 rooms, 32 are suites, 6 of which have terraces overlooking the glittering gilded domes of Moscow’s famous landmarks including Red Square and Bolshoi Theatre. Starting at 35 square metres, the guestrooms have up to 3-metre ceilings, and double glazed windows, making them blissfully quiet. Each newly renovated room will feature incredibly soft linens, glittering mirror glass and rich oak wood panels surrounding the generous bathrooms, which will offer rainfall shower heads, and oversized sinks. Each bathtub will have a turned leg terri-cloth ottoman at its side – perfect for relaxing with the poetry of Pushkin while drawing the bathwater. Four top Suites will feature unique layouts of up to 250 square metres, each with a signature design approach, reflecting the spirit of the city and the hotel’s Armenian roots.

    The new design features a sumptuous palette of silvered glass, smoked oakwood, leather, and limestone, which play to the sophisticated and international flair of Moscow. Rooms will be designed as a series of chambers, and decorated like beautiful apartments. Residential style furniture will add a home-like feeling to the space; floor to ceiling timber panels and lush drapery frame views of iconic Moscow. Natural materials such as smoked quarter-sawn oak and a delicate honed limestone will provide a counterpoint to the glitter of mirror glass furniture and cut and blown glass lighting.
